Hooray for the collective power of social media!
Today we celebrate this photo from Experiencias Xcaret, a socially responsible and sustainable tourist recreation park in Mexico.
PLASTIC Straws are 100% unnecessary! SO wonderful to have stainless steel and silicone solutions to this problem!
I agree!! It’s such a small item that makes such a huge negative impact!!
I’m so excited that Starbucks announced they are going straw free by 2020!
Thanks Katie, we were pretty excited about that too! Kudos to Starbucks!
It’s a hard habit to break, but one so worth breaking! I skipped the lid and the straw yesterday at a courthouse – and since attending my first Norwex conference, have started packing my Tervis with lid and straw for most of my vacations. I’m not sure how many I have skipped, but every small change leads to big results.
Way to go, Angie! You’re so right: Every small change really DOES lead to big results! Kudos to you and all the Movement members who are making a change for the better!
I have seen paper straws at my local organic market and they sell for about $10 for 50. Unfortunately, a person can get a box of 200 plastic straws for only a few dollars. When the price of alternative and organic products and food go down, and the availability of plastic and non-organic products and food grown with herbicides/pesticides is zero, then things will take a turn for the better.
We keep stainless straws in the car. My daughter is passionate about this and is focusing her Girl Scout Gold Award on this issue!
